Winery Notes (2016 Vintage)
"On the nose, the 2016 La Crema Monterey Chardonnay shows Meyer lemon, passionfruit, grilled pineapple and pie crust. On the palate, nectarine, papaya and crisp lemon-tangerine notes are complemented by a touch of spice and complex minerality."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, January 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Wonderfully rich and opulent, the complex bouquet shows grilled peach, rockmelon, vanilla, hazelnut and spice characters. It is concentrated and intense on the palate, and delivers excellent fruit weight and plush mouthfeel, stylishly framed by creamy texture. The wine is mouthfilling and delicious, and finishes superbly long and gratifying. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, January 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Full, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter edged. The nose is very full and voluminous with densely packed and harmoniously interwoven aromas of ripe stonefruit and citrus fruits, and savoury tropical fruits melded with a layer of creamy and nutty barrel-ferment notes. This unfolds plenty of complexing detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly rich with gently mouthfilling flavours of ripe stonefruits and citrus fruits in an amalgam of creamy barrel-ferment and savoury oak complexities. This has richness, mouthfeel and presence, balanced by underlying acidity. The flavours carry to a soft, full, lingering toasty finish. This is a harmonious and already complex layered Chardonnay with stonefruit, citrus fruit, and creamy, nutty oak flavours. Match with poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Monterey fruit fully barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 7 months in 17% new oak, primarily French, undergoing batonnage and 15% MLF."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Deep golden yellow in the glass with a light lanolin overlay to the buttery nuances infusing the soft cedary oak bouquet. Juicy peach fills the creamy palate that’s smooth and seamless in its flow with layers of butterscotch and butter caramel, well-balanced underlying acidity and a powerful finish. New vintage, new label, New Zealand winemaker."
